Switches off when try to take pics

I got this old f401 camera which doesn't work. when i turn on the camera when its in the shooting and video mode, the lens opens and the camera beeps twice and nothing happens.. the lcd screen doesn't turn on. when i turn on the camera on gallery mode, the lcd screen works and it works fine.. but when i switch over to shooting or video mode, the lens opens and the camera switches off. i guess i need to take it to a repair man.. but can someone tell me which part isn't working and how much will it cost to replace/repair that part?

I came to know the reason why this happens. the CCD is damaged. It will take around Rs2000 to repair the cam if you are in India.

My camera will turn on then go off and the lens will not go out how do i fix this?


The manual is a bit confusing. I do have a power shot, but is is a bit younger. My camera does have 2 On buttons. One to put it in shooting mode. And one to set it in display mode. If I press the display button (arrow right) the lens stays where it is and I only can see pictures I took. When I press the on off button the lens comes out.
I think you only have to switch the main dial to the camera logo (shooting Mode) and then press the Disp button, to shoot pictures and if you want to view pictures, you turn the dial to playback Mode (arrow to the right) and press the Disp button.
If it works, no fix, just knowledge about how the camera works. It is all in the manual.

Camera won't function - "E18" (Canon PowerShot S230)


Try lightly tapping lens on a hard surface. This sometimes reseats the lens. If this does not work take to bits and reassemble.

Camera turns off after lens comes out in shooting mode.


I'd recommend that you stop banging or fiddling with the lens as it does not sound like a lens error (if it were so, you'd still get an error even in review mode). Instead it sounds like the brand of batteries that you're using may not be providing sufficient power.

Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Most retailers sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Fuji Finepix F401 - cannot switch to playback mode


There are no remedial suggestions I am sorry to say. These devices are made in such a way that a 'repair' would not be possible only replacement if under warranty- which this one longer is. 4 years is a good life and technology has moved on now so much that a new camera is going to be the only option.

Lenc cover will not open


This can be caused by several different situations. Most commonly the camera has experienced some kind of impact which knocks an element out of alignment, preventing the lens from rotating normally. Symptoms of this include: *you may hear no mechanical sound at all when the camera is turned on *you may see visibly mis-aligned components of the lens *you may hear a loud "snap snap" sound as the camera tries to move the lens when the camera is powered on The second most common cause is a particle of sand getting stuck in the focus motor drive gears. This prevents the focus element from moving normally and causes the camera to shut off to prevent damage to the lens assembly. Symptoms of this include: *A loud "buzzing" sound when the camera is turned on, followed by the beeping and shutdown. Finally the third most common cause of this problem is a broken tooth on the zoom motor drive gears. Symptoms of this include: *the sound of the running motor with a regular "click click click" sound for several seconds. This will not be a "snap snap" sound, that is a different problem. *the lens will move in and out easily by hand as if free from any resistance. All of these problems require disassembly to repair. The charge is around $125 labor at my shop.
